Neuer Orbis Pictus für die Jugend, oder Schauplatz der Natur, der Kunst und des Menschenlebens in 322 lithographirten Abbildungen mit genauer Erklärung in deutscher, lateinischer, französischer und englischer Sprach nach der früheren Anlage des Comenius bearbeitet und dem jetzigen Zeitbedürfnisse gemäss eingerichtet.
Reutlingen, Johann Conrad Mäcken, 1835.. Tall 8vo, frontispiece, pp. x, 706, [3] index, [1] imprint, and 320 lithograph illustrations on 160 plates illustrating professions, etc., [1] final lithograph; contemporary half roan over marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red gilt-lettered spine label; label with central crease, but an unusually attractive copy. Third Gailer edition (the first published in 1832) and the first to include English of this nineteenth century re-working of Comenius' Orbis Pictus. In his interesting preface Gailer mentions that the religious content has been toned down, and that he has attempted to include information on recent scientific discoveries, such as electricity and the air pump. Apart from that the basic structure of the Orbis Pictus has not changed since Comenius. Images are accompanied by titles and numbers that point to words that are set in short sentences. Pilz, Die Ausgaben des Orbis Sensualium Pictus, pp. 363-66.
